Boston Oct. 1 1994. Great audience recording of a great performance of a great, beautiful song. The best Stellas are Jerry's most emotional performances. And the very last performance on July 6 '95 in Missouri is an excellent final Stella.

05-15-1983 is the best of the 80s (great singing, awesome middle solo, Weir and Garcia wind it up beautifully at the end with a Garcia fan-out)
06-18-1974 is the best pre 75'
10-21-1978 is perfectly realized (to bad this version is a sbd aud splice)
03-18-1988 is pretty darn good
05-26-1995 Jerry gets it together for one last great version
03-21-1994 has been mentioned but is a fantastic version

10/6/81 is my current favorite... it's a bit of a strange one... minimalism at its finest... sparse, quiet, haunting... Jerry's vocal is so tender and pained... the middle jam is not great, but the closing jam starts so quiet and simple before building to a huge climax...

plus, the entry from Sugar Mag is very cool...

ONLY it has to be the audience tape (if there even IS a sbd out there)

From China all the way through to Stella is the best I've ever heard. NOT the quality of the recording, NOT the setlist choice and NOT the calibre of music that they played...but its the PERFORMANCE and the CROWD PARTICIPATION that does it for me. The singing back and forth from Bobbys voice and Jerrys guitar...sometimes even stepping on eachother (as in Rider).

"bonk:".. great post; nowadays I'm going with
1974-06-18: "..It's a Sin (instrumental) > Stella Blue" but that will change depending upon what's going on in my life or in my head as Life proceeds. - Ashes

bonk et al, if you're going to keep posting about band-specific songs and shows, please label your subject line with the actual band, such as "Grateful Dead". That will help all fans. Thanks!

One that gets overlooked and shouldn't. This show was much more than the famous Ravenspace that gets all the attention. This STELLA shows why Brent was such an improvement for songs that depended on sweet harmonies, and Jerry is into it as well.
